3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus was fun and let me find a lot of friends and be social.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Some good some bad, depends on where you live at.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Every restaurant of every ethnic cuisine you could imagine.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Everyone is super helpful. If they can't answer your question, they know someone who can.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid isn't terrible, unless you get audited. Student Union is very helpful.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Top party school. Greek parties are the best. Some house parties are okay.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Woodlands is the best dining hall for sure. Edmondson is cool because its all you can eat but they have weird options.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Read is the worst dorm but closest to classes. Quiet, lots of music students.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Sometimes it can be difficult to find affordable options, but they do exist. I happen to have a very affordable place in a decent location and have a great landlord.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: One of my favorite things about IU is that it has so many diverse eating options off-campus. I love 4th street!

3 College Junior

Administration: I have not had any issues concerning campus strictness.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I have been able to get the financial aid needed for the most part. Calling to ask questions or get aid when it is needed has been a hassle though, especially in terms of paying for summer classes.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: The bar and party scene is extremely prevalent here.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: I like dining options that are buffet style/you don't have to pay for each food item individually. Otherwise it is far too expensive. Also, there are not good meal plan options for students who live off campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus was convenient because it was close to all of my classes; however, it was extremely expensive and the process of selecting housing and a roommate needs to be improved. I am paying far less to live pretty close to campus and have my own room.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties are easy to find but the Greek houses are always throwing down.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off campus yet but I have toured a few apartments. Most are far from campus.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: A good variety of ethnic foods, there is always something new to try.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Nothing is really that strict. Administration accepts that you are here to learn from your mistakes.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There are constant incoming bursar bills with little explanation of why they are charging you.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties are available pretty much everywhere. I would have to try harder not to find a party than to find one. Most of them are pretty fun.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not amazing but not terrible either. The worst part is that none of the food options are very healthy.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My place of residence is a great place to live. It is right across from the gym and not too far of a walking distance from my classes.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

IU is a well-rounded school, excelling in everything from academics to athletics. The fact that it offers something for almost everyone is the testimony given by the student body; over 40,000 kids from all over the world found IU and have made it their home for four years or more. IU’s campus is an original place in an isolated little town, and while it may be in the middle of nowhere, it doesn’t take long for most students to find something that makes it feel a little more like home.

Most of the complaints about IU involve its large size, and if you’re looking for the kind of school where everybody knows everyone else’s names, this isn’t the right place for you. However, the faculty, staff, and general population of Indiana University all work together to make an otherwise intimidating atmosphere feel a bit more accepting. There are so many opportunities here that your experience at IU is undoubtedly what you make of it. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to gain admission, you don’t have to be a long-time binge-drinker to have a great social life, and you barely even have to leave your dorm room to make friends. Ultimately, these are just a few of the many positives that make the college experience in Bloomington, Indiana the most memorable and most educational years of your life.
